Chai is the Hindi word for tea. In recent years, chai has come to mean "spiced tea." This Chai starts with great black tea, and Two Leaves and a Bud adds pure, whole spices.
About Two Leaves and a Bud:
Two Leaves and a Bud is an independent tea company based in the small mountain town of Basalt, Colorado (population 3,000), and is known internationally for producing high quality organic and fairly traded tea in sachets, iced tea, loose leaf, and now teabags from their Paisley Label Tea collection.
Truly great tea is hard to come by. It requires rich flavor with complexity and nuance. It balances sweetness and astringency.
Named for the top two leaves and bud of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) plucked by hand to make the world's best tea, Two Leaves and a Bud has built a grassroots following by "taking tea personally" — connecting tea lovers to the tea they love and introducing new tea drinkers to great tea. Cheers to that!
